THE only weight was down Slimming World for reality star Mark Wright when he met a Malvern woman at Slimming World’s annual awards ceremony to celebrate its most successful slimmers.

Lisa, who manages Slimming World groups in Malvern, was thrilled to get the chance to pose for a photo with the celebrity at the event in Birmingham.

Mark, who shot to fame on The Only Way is Essex before taking to the jungle as a contestant in I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here, now fronts ITV2 show Take Me Out: The Gossip.

He joined Slimming World’s founder Margaret Miles-Bramwell to host the ceremony, saying: “Presenting the awards was a real honour. I was absolutely blown away by the people who joined us on stage. I couldn’t believe how much weight they’d lost and what a difference it had made to their lives.”

Lisa Marie says meeting Mark was the perfect ending to a great year.

The club now helps more than a million people every year to lose weight and lead healthier, happier lives.

“But there’s still a lot of work to be done,” she said.

“With one of the highest levels of obesity in Europe right here in the UK, we want to help even more people to slim down and improve their health starting this January."
